Getting There & Parking
A total of four free shuttle buses operate between London Stadium and Stratford Station for supporters with access requirements.
Staffed by the West Ham United Foundation, the buses will run from two hours prior to kick-off, to coincide with the turnstiles opening. Supporters will be collected from platform 13, near the Jubilee Line, and the shuttles will run at regular intervals.
Following the final whistle, as soon as the police allow, the buses will continue to take supporters back to Stratford Station.
The London Stadium has a disabled car park with 49 Blue Badge parking spaces in Car Park 1A.
All disabled Season Ticket Holders who had a parking space at the Boleyn Ground will automatically be allocated parking at the new Stadium. Thereafter, supporters will be allocated parking based on their priority order on the waiting list. A total of six spaces will be reserved for supporters of the visiting club.
All accessible Blue Badge parking spaces on the Stadium Island are located as close as possible to main entrances within the parking area, with direct, clear and safe pedestrian routes provided.
West Ham’s Stadium is a public transport accessible venue and, as such, supporters are reminded that there are no drop off or pick up points in the Stadium’s immediate surrounds.

Spectator Viewing areas
There are 214 wheelchair user spaces at the London Stadium. Home and away allocation of wheelchair user spaces to be confirmed.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 238 wheelchair spaces (202 home and up to 36 away). 75% of these should be elevated positions and the remaining 25% pitchside.
LPF's view is that many disabled supporters should be able to access general seating areas and only those with specific needs eg those who require extra legroom, or access via aisle seats or who need step free access etc should be allocated seats in the dedicated areas.
Based on the above, the club therefore only meets 90% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 24 wheelchair spaces. They should be working on a plan to rectify this deficit within a reasonable timeframe under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.
All catering outlets will be accessible and are located in relatively close proximity to the wheelchair user viewing positions. The outlets have been specifically designed to accommodate wheelchair users.
Accessible services & information
For ambulant disabled spectators, rest areas, including benches, some with back and arm rests, will be provided at no more than 50 metre intervals around the Stadium Island and landscaped areas.
Audio Descriptive Commentary is available with headsets needing to be pre-booked with the club. They are delivered to your seat and collected after the game.
